Last week, NABET-CWA won the largest back pay settlement in the
84-year history of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB),
requiring CNN to pay a total of $76 million to hundreds of broadcast
technicians who were fired after CNN terminated its subcontract with
union-represented employees at Team Video Services (TVS). The
settlement provides substantial justice to workers who have been
waiting more than 15 years to be made whole for the losses that they
suffered as a result of CNN's unlawful conduct.

NABET-CWA's longstanding labor dispute with CNN threatened to disrupt
the CNN-hosted January 14 debate at Drake University, with NABET-CWA
advising the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic
presidential candidates who qualified for the debate, and CNN of its
intention to picket the event.
